The Everything Cannon

This is my 2'nd cannon, if you saw my first cannon, I said it was a prototype, this is the actual cannon. I made it with pressure rated pipe and added a threaded valve so I could make attachments.

    I know. You posted this already, but this is very important. I can understand. Build an all metal gun with a QEV, pump it up to 300 psi and have fun! Plus, it won't explode and is more powerful.

    This would be a very inefficient design for launching something small, say a AA battery. It would be a good size for a t-shirt . It takes so long to pump up to a high PSI, high enough to get anything going fast, but you don't need ALL of that air that is stored in there to launch a battery. It just takes longer for charging it. This is good for t-shirts. You should make another smaller design for launching smaller things. I do understand your incentive for making it so big though. You did it so you could shoot ANYTHING YOU WANT. If it was small, you wouldn't be able to shoot bigger things. If you understand any of this... Great! If not....... Then just forget I posted this comment :/

    Also, Great job!
    If you are looking into this kind of thing, once you get better at it you can do some REALLY cool things.
